Street Clothes Special: Texans-Saints Inactives

New, comments

Howdy, y'all. It's Football Time in Houston and we're all decked out in our nifty Texans gear ready to cheer on the team as the face the Saints this afternoon.

There aren't any good photos of the Texans and Saints, so here's this pic of Hoyer with some teammates in the Superdome. Win?

While we're all dressed and ready to go (some of us are even wearing pants!), current NFL rules only allow the Texans and Saints to dress 46 players each for today's match-up.

If you were to look at the Texans' most recent game status report, you might be a little alarmed. There are 16 players listed on the injury report, but at this point in the season we could probably list 53 players as having boo-boos. Luckily all 16 players are listed as probable.

The Saints, meanwhile, have already named three defenders out for the game. Dannell Ellerbe (hip), David Hawthorne (thigh), and Damian Swann (concussion) were listed as out due to their respective injuries.

Texans Inactives:

  • Oday Aboushi (XSF performing better)
  • CB A.J. Bouye (concussion)
  • TE Garrett Graham (coach's indifference)
  • FS Rahim Moore (coach's indifference)
  • DE Jeoffrey Pagan (coach's indifference)
  • WR Jaelen Strong (coach's indifference)
  • QB Brandon Weeden (coach's indifference or recognition that he's terrible)
Surprisingly, out of the 16 players listed on the most recent injury report, only Bouye ended up missing the game. The rest of these are just sitting because they're worse than the guys in front of them on the depth chart.

Saints Inactives:

  • LB Dannell Ellerbe (hip)
  • DT Kaleb Eulls
  • QB Garrett Grayson
  • LB David Hawthorne (thigh)
  • DE Phillip Hunt
  • Mike McGlynn
  • CB Daniel Swann (concussion)
